This tea reflects the beauty and adventure of the Khumbu region of Nepal, gateway to the Everest mountain area and home to the famed Tengboche Monastary. Fresh spring leaves are allowed to oxidize naturally, and then carefully hand rolled producing a beautiful, dense tea. The cup reveals a dark amber liquor and a malty flavor, with hints of rich tobacco and a nutty finish. This tea is brisk and complex, with a well-balanced astringency and mouthfeel.
Khumbu has jammy flavour notes, moderate to high tannins and a dry finish. It is packed with flavour and could possibly take a small splash of milk if infused longer. Khumbu is an ideal breakfast tea, and Assam drinkers should try it.
